Transportation between Prague Ruzyne Airport and Prague Centre
Prague has only one international airport - Praha Ruzyne Airport - that is located to the north-west of the city, about 17 km from the city centre. The airport has no metro or train connection with the city centre and is only served by buses and taxis.
Two local buses connect the airport to metro stations.
The buses operate between 4.20 and 24.00, approximately every 20 minutes and cost CZK 20 (CZK 25 if bought from the driver). The scheme and time tables of Prague public transport can be viewed at http://www.dp-praha.cz/en/di-trasy.htm or http://www.dp-praha.cz/en/index.htm, respectively.
There is also a relatively cheap airport bus MINIBUS CEDAZ which will get you to DejvickŠ metro station (CZK 60) and to V Celnici street (CZK 90) in the city centre. These buses run roughly from 5:30 until 21:30 every 30 minutes.
Another option is an airport taxi. A taxi from the airport to the downtown should cost about CZK 520 (not more than CZK 700).
